local programs our energy efficiency and our renewable projects that included go solar and our other capital projects locally which includes street light services. it was tough to get there but we got a balanced financial plan and that funded number one deferral fees. we funded that through our current customer basis. in a normal year we generate about 1.4 million megawatt hours. you can see on that left bar the total hours and how their distributed among our customers with 41 percent of megawatt hours going to our enterprise customers and that's where our largest portion of revenues comes from the 79 million. in the middle column the rate on average we're chargingors customers. for 41 percent of the power you can see we've received 69 percent of our revenues that's our highest paying customer base they pay retail rates. then we have our general fund and wholesale customer transactions at the top. so this is - funds one hundred and 11 or 12 million every year of our costs. now we have new challenges. although we had a balanced plan we've got new capital improvement needs. as i mentio
governor bill ritter. he helped our state become a national leader in the new energy economy and in our fight to combat global warming. he was our governor from 2007 to 2011. he found really creative ways to build a bipartisan consensus around the need for our state to develop clean energy while also safeguarding our land and our air and our water. the features that make the centennial state. we're the envy of the world. he was raised on a farm. he brought that rural perspective to questions about crafting an effective state policy on energy development. many of you have heard me talk about our strong removal of electricity standard. it's second only to california's. i helped lead that effort in 2004. we started out with the a 10% requirement. we very quickly met that requirement. governor ritter came along and he built on that accomplishment. he led the effort whereby now we're going to triple the state's use of renewable energy to 30% by 2020. along the way, he created the governor's energy office which was the first cabinet level office devoted to improving the effective use of color

is the reservoir in the past and they have had to supplement the energy source with what is offered referred to as the dirty energy and because they are greenhouse emissions and in that last fiscal year you will see that it drops to zero and will remain zero, because the state is going it require that any supplemental energy be zero emissions with respect to the climate change. >> that is the port's profile. and within the context of the over all city, the port represents a little less than one percent of the city municipal craoenous galses and you will see that bright blue sliver up right near the 12:00 and so the mta and the reds in the upper right corner and the public health and the airport and the departments that by the very nature have the port as i say are less than one percent and but it is still? ing that we are trying to control and reduce. >> it covers by 15 to 20 ordinances and these are just highlights and these bench marking and the lighting retrofit and these are efforts to conserve the energy as is the benefit and they are looking to minimize and that is the gh up there and
. that matters. going from policies that push back economic growth to creating economic energy help. but the question of business as usual versus dysfunction is extremely significant. just a few months ago we had a government shutdown. we were in the midst of a crisis over the borrowing authority of the united states. and it was very undermining of confidence. the reason we are not out of the woods completely is that as long as we have so many americans looking for work, our job is to focus on more jobs. we still have deadlines looming in washington. our borrowing authority runs out again january 7. at that point congress has to act. >> tell us about december, about what happened with the jobs number. >> i have spent most of the last three and a half decades advising policy makers not to react to each month to month number too strongly, to look at the overall pattern. we will only know in several months exactly what that number means. i've read enormous range of views as to what the number means. the trend that has been clear for several months, i don't think one ought to look at a

our country from scarcity to abundance, from dependency to self-sufficiency and energy policy is another area where governors have been leading the charge despite the absence of a company has of national energy plan. for some of us, that is just fine because we are moving ahead here and many governors have created their own innovative energy plans that are helping state support homegrown energy production and meet the energy efficiency needs. this is helping to advance economic development, lower cost, improve reliability and resiliency. in the process, generating state revenue. state efforts can go a long way. federal policies must complement the efforts to improve our nations energy security and support the diverse range of domestic energy resources. in my home state of oklahoma, we have called for a 20% decrease in energy use and you will find similar bipartisan programs through the nation in states like new york, alabama, iowa colorado. another great examples of leading the way in innovative public policy is the multistate memorandum of understanding in which my vice chair
on carbon emission reductions by championing energy conservation and efficiency measures in our facilities. lockheed martin. let's look at wal-mart. founded and headquartered in arkansas, wal-mart wrote we're committed to reducing our carbon footprint and we're working with our suppliers to do the same. indeed i met yesterday with the general counsel from apple doing exactly the same thing, working to reduce their carbon footprint, working with their suppliers to push for reductions on the part of their suppliers. wal-mart's 2009 sceanability -- sustainability report shows its long-standing commitment to fighting climate change. here's what wal-mart said. climate change may not cause hurricanes but warmer ocean water can make them more powerful. climate change may not cause rainfall, but it can increase the frequency -- frequence and severity of flooding. climate change may not change droughts droughts but it can make droughts longer. every company has a responsibility to reduce greenhouses as quickly as it can. that's wal-mart. that's why we are working at a number of areas, they continue
funding climate research, research into potential new technologies, cleaner sources of energy, common sense ways to promote energy conservation and efforts to expand nuke yar power, the most significant, a mission-free energy source in the world i would suggest. i've supported in the past ethanol, solar and other renewables and gas mileage rules, quaf fay standards. the truth is predictions of warming simply have not occurred at the rate the experts have predicted. this rush to force billions more dollars of cost on this economy, thousands of more people laid off based on predictions of that are not panning out deserves analysis. there is common ground that we can reach, things we can do together, and there are certain things that i oppose and do not believe can be justified. what's wrong with the president's plan? i'd suggest four concerns, one. the president's plan lacks balance between costs and benefits. this administration primarily through the epa is imposing a massive bureaucratic expensive plan that threatens to kill thousands of jobs, increase energy costs for american famili
of american energy is critical. americans are very uneasy about a plan being enacted via executive fiat and with what seems to be a total disregard for the costs associated with it. owners of coal plants have announced that a total of over 55,000 megawatts of coal-fueled generating capacity will be shut down by 2025. of this total, epa regulations have been cited as a factor in the closure of over 45,000 of those megawatts. 303 coal units in 33 states. the american coalition for clean coal energy conservativively estimates these shutdowns will cost the loss of up to 17,000 jobs. in 2012 national economic research associates analyzed the impacts of several epa regulations affecting coal-fueled electricity generation. comply ans costs for the electric sector averaged $15 billion to $15.7 billion per year. u.s. employment losses average 544,000 to 887,000 per year. given epa's recent new source performance standard proposal which hinges upon unproven carbon capture and sequestration technology, americans can only expect even higher energy prices and greater job losses. countries that have

, it creates more energy going up into storms, and that makes stronger storms when they hit the shore. so much of the science is way past debate, and if you simply take the sciences way past debate and apply it, you draw the same conclusion. are there eccentrics outliers that can be quoted? sure, there are. but for this committee to rely on anything other than the massive consensus of peer reviewed science, but let's look at the people that are asking us to take action. coke and pepsi. ford and gm. nike, walmart, apple. the joint chiefs of staff. the u.s. conference of catholic bishops. the garden clubs of america. at some point, people have to come to the realization that the scam that is being perpetrated has got to come to an end. and i hope that that time comes soon. >> thank you, senator. senator vitter? >> thank you, madam chair. i just want to make a brief kme comment about science, too. i think it's a useful transition to the next panel. i want to underscore senator wicker's comments. i think we do a real disservice to science and facts the way we often do a cartoonish gloss over these

[applause] i have a program i really want to spend a couple of minutes on because it is not just helping businesses succeed. it is helping the structurally unemployed. we put state resources behind this, working together. it is called community ventures, and community ventures is geared to give the structurally unemployed opportunities they did not otherwise have. we have placed over 1400 people in the last year. the one-year retention rate is almost 70%, and we have 75 employers participating. one thing i will tell you i am really impressed with is the average wage for people in these pertions is over $11.50 hour. i talk a lot about numbers, but i want to make sure everyone realizes we are talking about real people and their lives here. i am going to share a story now about community ventures. this
in the energy efficiency if we save the power do we have a customer to sell it to. i would welcome more thought and a high-level analytical to save the power to sell it as well as the financial savings understanding we don't have the capital to invest in energy efficiency >> commissioner moran. >> i think i agree. the challenge is to fourth where we can make the saved to the customers we sell the power to. that's one the issues that's been con fouvend. it's harder to afford programs that benefit pg&e customers than it is to show the ability we have the power to sell 1928 and highlight the importance of the subsection agreement. we heard that the dollar impact is 20 mill every year into the future. it will also effect we get to call the customers. as we precede on that it's not just budgetary but in other regions as well. it is one of the keys channels >> unless there are objections i said to see the slide to include a brief statement of that additional challenge i didn't hear an objection. i think that's one of the things we face and it should be render. general manager kelly >> i want to h
talking about energy production and our opportunities for exports, there is our renewable energy resource. there is renewable technology. producers of wind turbines, solar panels and other technologies also reduce our trade through our exports. so when we're talking about energy exports, let's truly talk about all of them, including our renewable technologies. i think that the general lack of trade restrictions on renewable energy technology products doesn't immediate to be modified. if renewable technology is the future, then it needs to be competitive. and then finally, the last area is nuclear technology. the united states has been the undisputed leader of nuclear technology throughout the world. we produce more nuclear power than any other nation. and as the global nuclear trade has developed, what we've seen is that the u.s. market share there has declined. i think that the federal government must continue its efforts to help develop small modular reactors, and i think that we can do this without putting international security at risk or violating nonproliferation controls.

energy savings opportunities. we also use rapid building assessments to perform sophisticated energy audits that require no on site work or new device installations. another valuable tool is energy savings performance contracts. these are public-private partnerships where the private sector provides the up front capital to make energy efficiency upgrades in a facility and is paid by the federal agency from the guaranteed energy savings under the contract. once the contract ends, the agency continues to benefit from the reduced energy costs. the president's climate action plan sets new goals on the use of renewable energy, increasing the currents goal from 7.5% to 20% by 2020. in fy 201346.1% came from renewable sources and enough renewable energy to power nearly 2,600 homes came from our own facilities. gsa is also working to improve our partner's understanding of their energy use as directed in the december 2013 president memorandum on federal leadership on energy management, gsa is partnering with the department of energy and epa to prepare a green button initiative that will incre
